Clear, Colorless liquid.
IMMEDIATE CONCERNS: CAUTION! May cause eye and skin
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
Severe irritation and discomfort. Reversible and/or irreversible
corneal damage may occure.
SKIN: No significant effects beyond minor irritation are expected.
INGESTION: Gastrointestinal tract irritation and/or discomfort is
INHALATION: Respiratory tract irritation and/or headaches possible.
Significant systemic toxic effects are likely following repeated exposure to
ROUTES OF ENTRY: Absorption, Inhalation, Ingestion
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYES: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for 15 minutes. If
irritation persists, seek medical attention.
SKIN: Wash exposed area with mild soap and water. Get medical
attention if irritation develops or persists.
INGESTION: Do not induce vomiting. Danger from aspirating into
lungs exceeds short term toxic effects. Get immediate medical help.
INHALATION: Remove victim from area of exposure. If unconscious,
give oxygen. Give artificial respiration if not breathing. Get immediate
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASHPOINT AND METHOD: ~(53°F)ASTM D56
FLAMMABLE LIMITS: 2 to 12
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not Available
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use dry chemical, foam, or carbon
EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Vapor accumulations may flash and/or
explode if ignited. Keep ignition sources, open flames, ect., away from
FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Proper respiratory equipment
to protect against the hazardous effects of combustion products is
recommended. Water in a straight hose stream may cause fire to spread
and should be used as a cooling medium only.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Extinguish all ignition sources and ventilate area. Evacuate all non-
essential personnel. Blanket spill with alcohol resistant foam to limit
evaporation. Dike area to contain spill and clean up by absorbing on inert
absorbent or by other means. Liquid may be flammable even when mixed
with water unless heavily diluted (>5:1). Do not flush into sewers or
Contain material as described above and call the local fire or police
department for immediate emergency assistance.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Use appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8.
Handle in a well ventilated area.
Store unopened containers under cool, dry and ventilated conditions. Keep
away from heat, sparks and flame.
